The result of this work is the technical implementation of the idea of a reconfigurable elastic-deformable panel that has a continuous smooth shape of the cover surfaces when the panel is deflected by a certain angle and at the same time able to perceive a given normal load.
The digital fabrication of oxide glasses by three-dimensional (3D) printing represents a major paradigm shift in the way glasses are designed and manufactured. Automation enabled by the first industrial revolution led to the mechanization of blowing and casting processes.
My goal is to build a more human-like robotic head, using this electronic control system, to enable friendly human-robot interaction, which means that it is programmed to react as a human would.
A picture of the assembly, without parts, is stored in a database, along with a mask showing the location of each part (e.g. a screw or cable) to be installed.
Patented Fluid Displacement LinerTM (FDL) technology is a revolutionary impact technology advancement in terms of performance, comfort, and style in comparison to stagnant safety helmet technology (e.g. compression foam), now prevalent for 6+ decades.
Welding technologies are fundamental to fabrication and ubiquitous within manufacturing. Laser welding has found wide application for the joining of precision metal components and high-speed production due to the intense laser heat source.
Chemical manufacturing is responsible for close to 30% of the global energy demand, and innovative solutions are needed to reduce the impact of CO2 emissions released from energy-intensive chemical processes.
